Dr. Todd Davis, a family practice physician, is seeing patients at Harris Family Care-Cullowhee, a full-time primary care clinic in the Health and Human Sciences Building on the West Campus of Western Carolina University.
The clinic is part of a partnership between WCU and Harris Regional Hospital, a Duke LifePoint hospital, and is open to the community at-large, accepting walk-in visits and scheduled appointments for yearly preventive care check-ups, vaccinations, sports physicals and routine visits.
The clinic also allows WCU nurse practitioner students and students in related fields to receive education and training in an on-site clinical environment. Through an initiative called The Ascent Partnership, WCU works with Harris and Swain County hospitals to train the next generation of health care workers, support athletics and the arts in communities in the region, create opportunities for community engagement on wellness, and expand local availability of needed health care services.
“It is indeed an honor to be allowed the opportunity to participate in this extraordinary practice in partnership with Western Carolina,” Davis said. “My hope is that we bring to the Cullowhee facility an excellent standard of medical care that they can be proud of and serve our patients the best we can.”
Davis joins Emily Jenkins, a family nurse practitioner, in providing comprehensive health care for local individuals and families.
Davis attended medical school at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, completed his residency in family medicine at Roanoke Memorial Hospital in Virginia, and is board certified by the American Board of Family Medicine. He has 35 years of experience.
“We are excited to have Dr. Davis join the Family Care Clinic in the Health Sciences Building,” said Doug Keskula, dean of WCU’s College of Health and Human Sciences. “Not only do we appreciate the proximity of excellent primary care services for our employees, we also value the model of collaborative care that Dr. Davis and Ms. Jenkins emulate for our students. We look forward to integrating Dr. Davis into our classrooms and our students into the clinic.”
WCU’s Health and Human Sciences Building is located at 3971 Little Savannah Road, Cullowhee. To make an appointment at Harris Family Care-Cullowhee, call 828-631-8800.
